Christmas Puma & snow dog

I guess my kitty thinks he is a Christmas present...I think he was actually just wanting some sleep away from the dog :-)

And with awaking to about 6" of snow, when Riley went out to go potty he would come back with snowballs in his fur.

I spent 3 hours this morning make up a new web page for just my ornaments I make from burnt out light bulbs. I was selling them to earn enought to buy a laptop which I had always wanted and since in June I was able to fullfill that wish...I need to set a new goal of what to buy! Maybe a new fancy sewing machine...hmmmm makes my mind wander all over the place :-) Click on the title of this post and it will take you to see my babies I have created. I hope you enjoy the trip.

I got to meet fellow knitter Stephanie!!!

Over the last weekend my husband I went to visit family in Rufus, Oregon and on the way home I made arrangements to meet fellow knitter Stephanie in Hood River. When I called she was just heading out the door but agreed to come meet us in the Wal-Mart parking lot. She had said that her son had joked about "look for the tourist" well little did he know he had the right idea. We moved our car to be close to the front of the store, put up 2 chairs under a tree for shade and waited. We told people were were trying out for to become the new greeters. We had a nice visit (about 1 hour) despite the wind which actually did feel good after the heat of Rufus. I got to show her the purse I am making which she said was so much better in person than the pictures and to top it off I handed her a box, she opened and when she saw what it was...let out a squeal! That made my day!!!! I had brought her an Eeyore Lightbulb Ornament...which she had said was her favorite. Our meeting was the third person from the groups for both of us.

WHOO HOO I earned my laptop!!!!!!

Back in January I posted that I was going to sell my ornaments to earn $$ for a laptop as I wanted one not needed it. Well WHOO HOO last night I was able to get one as the first order I got was for two of each of the ones I make (I have posted pix of 10 but I do now make 11), and then I restored a computer for a neighbor...I was abl be to hang onto the $$ which was a big feat for me and then hubby did some overtime. I am SOOOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!! I bet you couldn't tell. I can now stop the internet search for one and get back to crafting and genealogy research.

WOW I have been at blogger for one whole year now and have I ever had fun. I guess I should have celibrated in a more fun way but alas it will have to be in just telling all of you who come see me here :-) I have been trying to pull myself in three diffent directions lately: 1) being on the computer way too much as I have finally gotten high speed internet for about 3 weeks now and been having a ball visiting all the sites I had wanted to see but to painful on dail-up; 2) trying to do more knitting on the looms and my next attempt is a pair of gloves; and 3) trying to gather up pictured and post of the different ornaments I paint out of dead light-bulbs. I am hopeing to earn enough to buy me a laptop...not too fancy of one but still portable. So I hope to get that posting up SOON! Thanks all for visiting and check back later.

it's Yurtle the turtle

I made this turtle in loom class...I think he came out nice. Now I have to make his friends, the ladybug, frog and monkey. You can see the original at this address: I think she does quite well, don't you?
